Leaching Gold Approach

Modelling and simulation of gold ore leaching

Others use an approach, called heap leaching, which consists of spraying a cyanide solution on a roughly crushed ore pile. In this approach, cyanide and oxygen diffuse slowly through the pores and fractures of the ore to reach gold surfaces. Several authors studied gold dissolution kinetics.

Precious Metal Heap Leach Design and Practice

CHEMISTRY OF GOLD/SILVER HEAP LEACHING The chemistry of leaching gold and silver from their ores is essentially the same for both metals. A dilute alkaline solution of sodium cyanide dissolves these metals without dissolving many other ore components (copper, zinc, mercury and iron are the most common soluble impurities).

Heap Mining Efficiently Leaches Lower Grade Gold from S

The cyanide then enters the heap and leaches the gold. Gold loves cyanide. Once the leach solution dissolves the gold, it continues percolating through the lower lifts until it reaches the liner located underneath the heap. Then it drains into a storage pond. Most economical heap leach mines achieve 70-80% recovery of gold and 30-50% of silver.
